Given how little ballet music I have that is an interesting one for me.

But at first glance I read the name as Beyonce 😀

Didn't catch that the first time around........



Do I need a HIP Violin Sonata cycle?

Hey Todd - I'll be doing some investigation when released - currently after many years of culling, my collection has the MI sets added above - my favs are the last two - not as happy w/ Barati & Wurtz, so a PI recording would be a nice replacement for me.  Dave :)

ADDENDUM:  This PI set is due for release on September 1 according to Amazon USA and is priced at $50 USD - hopefully cheaper in the Amazon MP and/or 'across the pond' - maybe not being on the Albany label?  Below is a short description from the Amazon listing.

Quote
Beethoven's ten Sonatas for Piano and Violin are performed on historic instruments by Jerilyn Jorgensen and Cullan Bryant. Instruments include an unsigned Viennese style piano from c. 1795, a Joseph Brodmann; and a Bösendorfer c. 1828-1832, among others. The violin is an Andrea Carolus Leeb from 1797 and a variety of bows from the period including one by Francois Xavier Tourte are used. Pianist Cullan Bryant is among the most active chamber and collaborative pianists in New York City, performing more than 50 concerts a year. His prizes and awards include the Leschetizky International Competition, Miami Arts Competition, and the Memphis Beethoven Competition, among many others. Violinist Jerilyn Jorgensen is a member of the faculty at Colorado College. She was first violinist of the Da Vinci Quartet, which performed throughout the United States to critical acclaim. She is a graduate of Eastman and Juilliard. Both Bryant and Jorgensen have recordings on the Naxos label.

There are several PI sets already. Fleezanis/Huvé on Cypres, Seiler/Immerseel on Zig Zag, Terakado/Bodenitcharov on Denon, & Ian Watson/Susanna somebody on Coro are the ones I can think of off the top of my head, I know there’s at least one or two others.

I will wait for samples as I’m not sure how much I would trust Albany in Beethoven in general, or with a Beethoven recording on period instruments by modern instrument specialists in specific. (They can work, cf Fleezanis/Huvé, but they don’t always.)

Every CD in this box is a Gem, at least to me. I must have played this box several times, complete. And every time it was a pleasure ride.

Hey Todd - I'll be doing some investigation when released


Do report back if you listen.  I have the Schröder/Immerseel of the Spring and Kreutzer sonatas, and my memories of it are not especially fond ones.  But as Altstaedt and Lonquich show with the Cello Sonatas HIP/Quasi-HIP Beethoven chamber music can work fantastically well, so maybe this new set will be the one.

FWIW I thought Seiler/Immerseel was lousy and Schroder/Immerseel was excellent.

Thanks AMW - I was aware of only several of those PI sets mentioned above - most were reviewed in the Fanfare Archives, and I was most impressed w/ the comments on the Ian Watson & Susanna Ogata performances (attached) - Importcds had the set shown below for $26 (+ $4), so went ahead and made the order!  Dave :)

I saw a September release on Naxos, of a violin concerto and a symphony by Joan Manen (not sure if that should be Juan, but that's how it's spelt on the disc). I have another concerto of his on a disc coupled with Lalo's Symphonie espagnole. The Concerto No. 3 on this new disc is 43 minutes, 29:51 of which is taken up by the first movement. The longest-timed opening movement of a concerto I've come across. I thought Joachim's Concerto in the Hungarian Style had a long opening movement (c. 26 mins), but this takes it to another level in terms of weight towards the first movement of a concerto.

Joan is the correct spelling for Catalan names, most notably Joan Miró.  :)

I noticed that timing too. The symphony and concerto are being released as a two CD set, which seems unusual. Maybe he didn't write a lot of short filler pieces.

my last batch of SEPTEMBER NEWS



Rubinstein's "Le Bal" is a 10-piece cycle which clocks in at 81:52 on this single CD. On the Breiner album, the "folk instruments" played by Marian Friedl are "whistles, bells, fujara, Jew's harp, gaida" and the dances themselves have endearingly silly names like "My father is but one big headache" and "What are you doing, old spinsters?" The Blomstedt Brahms has the Tragic Overture and was recorded in fall 2019.





"On Nostalghia, his second PENTATONE album, pianist Francesco Piemontesi presents original works of Bach, alongside Bach transcriptions and works inspired by Bach from Ferruccio Busoni, Wilhelm Kempff and Maximilian Schnaus. Whereas many modern-day musicians aim to revive the instruments used in Bach’s own time, Piemontesi explores the tradition of Bach transcriptions for piano. This tradition started in the nineteenth-century, found its most prominent exponent in Busoni, and is still alive today, as Schnaus’s transcription of Kommst du nun, Jesu, vom Himmel herunter demonstrates."

Kadesha just popped on my radar, so the timing of that disc is good.  Also, it's good to see Pappano play his instrument for a paycheck.

Whenever I see a huge line up of new recordings, like now, I do wonder who on earth buys all that stuff?  ???

Or are we at GMG keeping the Classical record industry afloat?  :D

I mean, outside of this forum, I personally don't know anyone who still buys physical records/CDs.....

Boy, I sure do...and a good friend does (even more so than yours truly); he's always buying and ordering CDs and LPs

Yes, it's even quite rare that I buy new releases, except for new budget sets. Repertoire-wise I'm pretty well covered. I think for some new releases, CDs are just thought to supplement streaming or downloads. Dacapo for example recently did a sale of a lot of their CDs, but keeping the digital options. I think it's interesting however how JPC still abstains from selling digital files, whereas digital files are often just about outnumbering CDs at Presto. Maybe say the German/Central European public can be a bit more conservative. Personally I don't do streaming or downloads, or listen to podcasts, or watch TV that isn't on air.
